        public Form2()





        private void Form2_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)


            this.WindowState = FormWindowState.Maximized;




        private void Form2_Paint(object sender, PaintEventArgs e)



          //Create graphic object for the current form


            Graphics gs = this.CreateGraphics();


            //Create  rectangle objects


            Rectangle rt = new Rectangle(20, 100, 200, 200);


            Rectangle rt1 = new Rectangle(230, 100, 200, 200);


            //Create brush objects


            HatchBrush hb = new HatchBrush(HatchStyle.BackwardDiagonal, Color.FromArgb(255, 255, 100, 10));

            HatchBrush hb1 = new HatchBrush(HatchStyle.LightDownwardDiagonal, Color.FromArgb(0, 10, 200, 255)); 


            //fill the shapes
